Washington, D.C. – United States Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), today issued the following statement on his yes vote on S. 815, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA):
“As I said in 2007 when I voted for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act in the House, one of the most important constitutionally mandated functions of the federal government is to protect the rights of individuals. While I had concerns about expanding protections beyond those House provisions, after consideration, I believe supporting this bill is the right thing to do. I am hopeful that the bill moves forward in a way that works for employers as well as employees.” said Flake.
